    MANKATO, Minn. — If Vikings WR Troy Williamson finally steps up and fills even half the shoes he was slated to fill when drafted to replace Randy Moss two years ago, the Vikings have the wonders of New Age performance training to thank.

    When the team used a first-round pick in 2005 to soften the blow of ridding itself of Moss, Williamson's blazing speed and yards-after-the-catch threat were sure to make the loss at least palatable. But while his speed was can't miss, Williamson kept missing ... the ball.

    This article includes this nugget:

    First-hand experience: Ironically, the day I showed up the Vikings had the Nike people arrive as well to fit their players with perhaps the coolest thing I've seen on the road to date. They're called Nike Sport Vision contacts and they are the sickest blood-red contacts you'll ever see. They look like they're straight out of a slasher flick and head trainer Eric Sugarman got the Nike people to come and put his guys in these things, which pretty much eliminate all glare.

    Player after player walked past looking like a murderous soul took over their minds. Sick!

    Then, Sugarman put me in a pair as well to get a first-hand look at the advantages it provides his players. First off, they looked awesome. Blood-red eyes! Heck, I want to start wearing them out to the clubs because they just look so incredibly freaky.

    The moment I went outside the advantage smacked me hard. I was able to see much sharper for much greater distances and these things weren't even prescription. Even from the sideline of the practice field I could see the ball crystal clear. What they do is get the ball to really pop out. In addition, everything in the background goes even deeper into the background. Great, great concept. Smart move by Sugarman and Childress.
    Wow!

    As I started reading this piece I thought -- Old News. This has been around for ages. But then his bit on the red contacts popped up. Great read. I wonder if any other NFL teams are doing this?
